Businesses undergoing transformations, or those planning to make the great leap in the future, need a dedicated team to oversee their projects. That means putting plans in place, setting the wheels in motion, closely monitoring initial signals and fine-tuning where necessary, and finally reporting back to the board on progress at regular intervals. This tasks are carried out by a transformation team headed up by a business transformation manager.
The BT manager often reports to a business transformation director, but in some corporate structures the manager heads up the transformation and reports directly to the board as a whole. The details of the structure determines what roles the manager performs and how strategically they need to be thinking, i.e. whether they are creating a transformation project or simply implementing one. Either way, the BT manager needs to show the board that the transformation project is being activated to plan, and works alongside analysts and other managers to monitor and forecast its progress.
To land a great business transformation manager role, you need a minimum of experience at a managerial level overseeing a transformation project in an industry similar to the one in which the company operates. However, although experience at managerial level is preferred, team leadership or single-handedly overseeing transformation at a relevant level may be considered more important than the position’s title.
Above all, you need to demonstrate that you have the analytical skills required to oversee a project and ensure the wheels keep moving, especially when the terrain gets rough. You need to show that you can delegate effectively and that you have the people skills and the management skills needed to make sure the transformation project progresses as closely as possible to the plan and that the goal and milestones are met.

South Shields sits at the mouth of the Tyne in Tyne and Wear, about 8 miles (13 km) downstream of Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Gateshead, and about the same distance north of Sunderland. Although mining, shipbuilding and docks played a massive role in the town’s emergence during and after the Industrial Revolution, much of these industries has now been closed down, and the town relies on the service sector for local jobs. More likely, however, South Shields’ inhabitants will commute to Newcastle or Sunderland for their working lives. The port is still active, and although it is a shadow of its former self, seems to be growing.
The town punches above its weight when it comes to the list of famous people who were born or brought up there. The director of Alien, Prometheus, Thelma and Louise and Gladiator, Ridley Scott was born there, as were F1 genius Sir Frank Williams, Python Eric Idle, novelist Catherine Cookson and comedian Sarah Millican. At least some of them still have their Tyneside accents!
